. blunt: that's fine. mr. president, this amendment would protect consumers from energy price spikes and workers from significant job loss by providing a point of order against a carbon tax or a fee on carbon emissions. energy intensive jobs are the first to go when your utility prices get uncompetitive. your ability to compete in the world marketplace, the price of american made goods, what families pay at the pump, what they pay for heating and cooli cooling, what they pay for every american product they make would be impacted by a carbon tax or fee. and i urge the support of this amendment. mrs. murray: mr. president if. the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: i yield one minute to the senator from rhode island. the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: mr. president, except for perhaps in congress and in the boardrooms of exxonmobil, it is no longer credible to deny what carbon pollution -- the presiding officer: the senate will come to order. mr. whitehouse: -- it is no longer credible to ignore what carbon pollution is doing
deep within the earth. their hidden presence may have charged the sacred precinct with spiritual energy. the olmec world was alive with unseen spirits that contrled all natural phenomena. thunder cracks ) rresent the power of these mysterious forces, olmec artists combined features of the most fearsome predators of the jungle, creating hybrid images of awe- inspiring supernatural beings. irual leaders, or shans, lied humans to the fors controinthe uner peleelieved that the sha could slo epraesr shans, and magically transform themselves tohepe oa jaguar transported by thianimal spirit, they road e cosmos gaining knowledge that allowed them to ensure rich harvests, heal the sick and protect the community. rulers also claimed the power to mediate between human and spiritual realms. some are shown cradling a supernatural infant-- part human, part jaguar-- who may have been their link to the spiritual world. similar figures appear on sculptures found at la venta thtirling med to be altars. but decades later, a clue to their true function was discovered far from the coast, at thentainous site
, cosponsored by senator collins and senator merkley, would add resources to the energy program for the purpose of increasing support for the weatherization assistance program. it would also include weatherization in the investments urn the deficit-neutral reserve fund on clean energy and environmental protection. weatherization does several things. puts people to work, helps low-income people control their energy bills and helps us move towards energy independence. we have to do more of this, not less. this will put us back on the track of doing more and i would urge passage. mr. sessions: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from alabama. mr. sessions: i thank the senator and his cosponsors for their work on this amendment. the presiding officer: the senate will be in order. mr. sessions: i would note that it would double the budget numbers for the weatherization program and note that the recovery act a few years ago, the stic stimulus bill, provided $5 billion for the weatherization program. so while dubious about the wisdom of this doubling of the program, it is offset. and, th
to clean energy. let's clean up our act. let's save our children. save our grandparents. we're not talking about a remote possibility sometime in the near future. climate disruption is here. it's happening before our eyes. more american children are getting asthma and allergies. more seniors are suffering from heat strokes. let me tell you about what's happening in new york right now. we're seeing indications that extreme weather events like superstorm sandy are linked to health problems. do you know they've already given a name to a cough that has developed in that part of the country, locally known as the rockaway cough because it's in rockaway. the rockaways peninsula on long island, new york, was devastated by sandy. lives were lost. homes and businesses were destroyed. and now local residents are experiencing health problems from the flooding. coughing, it's a common symptom that health officials said could come from mold or the haze of dust and sand kicked up by the storm and demolition. if you listened to governor cuomo, what he said was these so-called 100-year storms are seen all
to produce very expensive fuel, shouldn't it at least happen through the the department of energy or some other environmental research-oriented institution? mr. inhofe: would the senator yield? mr. toomey: i would be happy to yield to the senator from oklahoma. mr. inhofe: we went through this on the armed services committee. is the senator aware that in one purchase, the administration forced the navy to buy 450,000 gallons of fuel at $29 a gallon -- you could buy it on the open market for $3. and secondly, i think you do know this because i heard you mention the department of energy -- when we formed the department of energy, they're supposed to do all this. but i would have to make one observation. as we have a president, an administration who's been cutting dramatically, and we're all concerned about what's happening to our military, our ability to defend ourselves, they do it in three quais ways. number one, they cut, number two, they delay. and number three, this is what we're getting to now -- they take the agenda -- his green agenda and put it not where it should be but under the
the department of energy loans which i think could be more useful here at home to build bridges. so i urge adoption of this amendment which would allow a new creation of a bridges fund, which i think our country desperately needs. thank you. mrs. murray: mr. president, the senate budget resolution that is in front of us that we are thoapg get passed tonight providing strong investments in transportation infrastructure. it fully funds map-21, the recent highway bill. it provides $50 billion for urgent transportation needs and another $10 billion for an infrastructure bank. we could put more funding towards transportation projects and fund some good projects but not without making cuts to other vital programs. the amendment before us will make unnecessary and deep cuts to foreign aid and energy programs. i oppose this amendment and ask for the yeas and nays. the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be a sufficient second. the clerk will call the roll. vote: the presiding officer: are there any senators in the chamber wishing to vote or change their vote? if not,
. we've had reserve funds adopted for education, clean energy, infrastructure, farm payments, food stamps, health care, pensions, housing, tooth dekaeurbgs -- decay, and now homeowners. so these create 50 ways to pass taxes more easily. it turns the budget discipline, if we don't watch it, into mush and makes it difficult to do -- maintain the integrity of the budget act and avoids really in some ways the hard work of setting priorities. i think we should do this by voice vote, but i just want to call my colleagues' attention to the fact that reserve funds too readily used can undermine the integrity of the budget process. the presiding officer: any further debate? hearing none, all those in favor say aye. opposed, no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. the amendment is agreed to. mrs. murray: move to reconsider. the presiding officer: without objection. there are now two minutes equally divided prior to a vote in relation to amendment number 152 offered by the senator from ohio mr. portman. the senator from ohio. mr. portman: mr. president, this is an amendment that
is doing. nobody knows what somebody over here in the mickey leland energy fellowship funding is doing compared with the new area rural competitive technology grants program. here's the other thing we found as we have gone through all these programs is that we have people who apply for a grant, people who apply for a grant and get it from one of these programs, turn around and go over and apply for the same grant from another program. so it is easy to see when you can continue to see multiple programs. even to get efficient in our federal fleet we have five different programs, 20 different agencies just to try to put fuel efficiency in the federal government. we started out with electronic health records systems for veterans and military, we have ten different programs within that. not one program. not two. but ten. just one other. here's green buildings. we listed that. multitude of agencies, multitude of programs. every department in the federal government has a green building initiative separate and apart from a central area where it ought to be, probably associated with the nationa
